Opened in 1984, Carlsbad Danish Bakery is a full service bakery located in the village of Carlsbad in the north coastal area of San Diego county. The bakery is family owned and operated. We create genuine danish delicacies with no added preservatives, hand crafted and fresh daily.
San Luis Rey Bakery’s ovens have turned out countless dozens of Mexican breads and pastries for more than four decades. The family-run confection shop bakes up a staggering array of pastries—from fruit pies and madelines to sweet empanadas and conchasa, or Mexican sweet breads. The sweet treats top off meals from the adjoining restaurant, where chefs simmer huevos rancheros and build sandwiches on house-baked bread. From each teal-cushioned seat in the dining room, patrons can tuck into meals and admire Mexican folk art and the vivid wall mural, or attempt to ruffle the strings of papel picado that crisscross the ceiling with cake-induced telepathy.
Along with San Luis Rey’s bevy of recipes, the bakery also focuses on wedding cakes. The celebratory stacks are adorned in delicate polka dots and paisleys or intricate swirls of creamy white frosting. For birthdays, the shop designs cakes topped with chocolate-covered fruits or vivid layers of fondant.
We are a family owned bakery in the heart of downtown Vista. Everything is made from scratch, using imported Belgium Chocolate and other fine ingredients. Our signature frosting is Italian buttercream which is made with egg whites for a light, fluffy frosting that is not thick and syrupy.
Helmed by a French pastry chef, Vista French Bakery Cafe imbues its breakfast cuisine with an authentic Parisian touch, rendered fresh by the use of locally acquired ingredients. House-made quiches warm plates, and a ratatouille of zucchini, eggplant, onion, and tomato gets wrapped up in the South of France omelet, which comes packed with feta cheese and adorned with a swanky scarf. With spacious, indoor seating and a cozy spot for outdoor dining, the café invites diners into an atmosphere where local art and rejected omelets hang on the walls while jazz gently plays. The affable staff welcomes guests to cap off their dining and music-absorbing experiences by enjoying fresh pastries such as fruit tarts, coconut macaroons, and mini vanilla custard eclairs.
At CB’s Cupcakes, the customer has complete and total control, and founder and owner Connie Barham wouldn’t have it any other way. The cupcake connoisseur opened the shop under the premise of why not let the customer choose—even for walk-in orders—and she’s been operating that way ever since. She spirals five frostings, such as chocolate buttercream or peanut butter, across the top of five types of cake: vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, key lime, and the flavor of the month, such as blueberry or cran-orange. Then, she tops off the mini or muffin-sized cakes with an array of fixings, such as sprinkles, graham-cracker crumbs, or mini M&Ms.
Connie, who sells the handheld treats at her two storefront locations and at various fairs around the state, doesn’t mind feeding furry companions either. She welcomes dogs to wait outside her colorful Victorian-themed shops, offering them water bowls and even bakeing them canine-friendly cupcakes made from healthy ingredients.
The team at Big Apple Bagels builds chewy, ring-shaped bread bites from scratch and wakes palates with steaming cups of Brewster's coffee. The menu teems with eats inspired by New York City deli food, such as bagel-based club sandwiches and nearly a dozen styles of cream cheese—including three whipped varieties and one milked directly from a somersaulting cow. Bagel flavors include plain and sesame, and gourmet muffins introduce mouths to fluffy, cake-like texture kept moist—yet low in cholesterol—with soybean oil.
